Preps of the week

ALEX PRICE, Judge: This West High transfer has made an immediate impact on the Bulldogs this year.

Last week he carried the ball 21 times for 227 yards and two touchdowns in Judge's big victory over rival Juan Diego.

Those numbers are particularly impressive when you consider he wasn't allowed to play in the first quarter because of disciplinary reasons.

"Alex did an outstanding job, very good, very gritty," Judge coach James Cordova said. "He kept his head up, kept positive. He's really transforming who he is, he's turning into a young man."

Those Week 4 numbers raised his season totals to 51 carries, 517 yards and an astonishing 10 TDs.

"He has great balance. He's a strong runner, and a fast runner," Cordova said.

ERIN MONSON, Skyline: It doesn't matter what the score or situation is in any tennis match, this Eagle senior plays the same regardless of the circumstances.

"Her best quality is her mental toughness," said Skyline tennis coach Joanie Daily. "I've never seen her let a situation get the best of her. She doesn't get down; her body language is always the same, always positive."

Monson, who participated in several national tournaments last summer, is ranked No. 5 in the Intermountain Region, and plays No. 1 singles for Skyline. She lost in the seimfinals at state last year.

"I can't even remember her missing a practice," Daily said. "She's a great example to the other girls . . . She's all business on the court, but when she comes off, she's a friend to everyone, even the girls she's competing against."
